Here in Watchranker we’ve covered watches inspired by some of the greatest pop culture and comic books, as well as science fiction brands like Marvel, Star Wars, and Mickey Mouse. In this article, we’ll cover watches inspired by DC, another comic book publisher that has created iconic characters, first in comics, then in movies and TV shows.
DC Comics (Detective Comics), a publisher of DC Entertainment and owned by Warner Bros., is one of the oldest comic book companies in the United States. The company founded by writer and entrepreneur Malcolm Wheeler-Nicholson was founded in 1934 as the National Allied Comics.
The fictional DC universe was introduced by Superman in 1938 and Batman a year later. Many famous characters followed, including Wonder Woman, Cat Woman, Aquaman, Joker and The Flash.

The following are brands and online stores that currently make watches inspired by these characters and provide links to where to get them. We will also take a closer look at each brand and give you a brief background on each company.

Undone is a Hong Kong-based company that makes high quality, bespoke watches. What is special about the company is the promise to produce 100% custom-made timepieces. The watches have flexible customization options that customers can explore, so you get a watch that you helped create.
In addition to watches created by the brand’s designers, there are also pieces that are inspired by cult figures. These collaborations include characters like Bugs Bunny, Peanuts, and Moomin. There are also three DC-style watches: Batman, Superman, The Flash, The Joker, and Harley Quinn.
One of the bestsellers in Undone’s collaboration is the Batman watch. Undon’s Batman: Caped Crusader watch is a tribute to the character’s 80th anniversary. This 40mm watch is the brand’s first titanium watch to be sandblasted with glowing properties. There is a Batman badge for the 80th anniversary on the case back. Find out more about the design and technical data here.
There’s also the sleek watch designed after The Flash. The Undone Flash: Into the Void watch has a minimalist design with a predominantly black color scheme, which is highlighted by a yellow second hand in the form of the Speedster bolt. This watch is also a 40 mm model and made of stainless steel.
Then there is the Superman watch. The Kryptonian Decryptor, a temporary version. This model is relatively more expensive than the other models because it is a collector’s item with special features, including a bezel that allows the wearer to write and decrypt secret messages in cryptonic.
